This report is about the well-being of children who are cared for over long periods of time by people other than their parents. More especially, it is concerned with a group of children for whose care corporate bodies, such as local authorities or voluntary children’s societies, have a significant measure of responsibility. Their parents do not have day-to-day responsibility for them nor are such parents usually in a position to exercise firm and active control over those who do care for their offspring. In some cases, indeed, their rights have been specifically curtailed by a court of law.
